connell was trying to say, we have come to this agreement. voting to raise taxes. that's huge for republicans. don't scuttle it because of some hiccup over the sequester. now a lot of democrats who don't like this, they want the president to fight. remains to be seen is that can it pass the house gop? house republicans said any type of deal that doesn't cut spending will not get our vote even if it comes out of the senate. still a long way to go on any final compromise. >> kristen, what are you hearing out of the white house right now? >> toure, i'm hearing that actually their optimism seems to be mounting this afternoon. they are hopeful. you heard mitch mcconnell say it on the senate floor, they're very, very close to a deal. having said that, you heard mike viqueira, luke russert lay out the problem with the sequester issue. that's the sticking point and sources at the white house tell me that staffers, senior negotiators have been working with the phones all afternoon long, of course, vice president biden, as well. deeply engaged in these negotiations. they have been pushing back, though, agai

. this is the biggest story in afghanistan and the last ten years. we don't hear about it. why? because the fact that more afghans today have access and know how to read or write, when a decade ago they would have had to walk 700 miles to make a phone call. but that's not a story. what is a story? it is a big story. i would imagine it is something that means a lot to them in terms of their key devotees. but what is even more exciting, you think about when we build the railroads, there's a lot about this, a lot of movies made. what happens when you build a railroad when they land on the other side of the railroad and the station gets valuable. you can provide services now that you couldn't provide before. so, it is the next generation. it's when we start to build on the new site of this telecommunications highway. mobile health, mobile banking. a whole a ray of services that we can now deliver because we are connected using this frontier technology. and that is such a powerful, powerful thing. it will have legs for the next 20 years, not to mention everything else that my friend talks about in hi

don't want them going over the cliff so to speak, you want to protect them. well, that was, i argued back in the 1960's, remember when people were sit inning in the universities, a nonnegotiatable demand. a thing called nonnegotiatable demand and that was society and people became more self-righteous and self-directed rather than understanding we had to operate within certain rules. i do think it has infected washington. i mean, i would call president obama one of the most self-righteous presidents we've ever had. david: president reagan, for example, stood for concrete things and didn't bend on the principles, because they had the guardrails that allowed them, it made it easier to negotiate with people they disagreed with. for example, tip o'neill, the democrat made a deal for the huge change in our tax structure. there seems no possibility of a deal like that being made now. >> well, the republicans clearly feel that they've been disadvantaged by president obama and they actually, i don't think, trust him or the democrats anymore because of the experience they went through with the

for a meeting on friday. if they can't reach a deal, taxes go up on all of us. plus, don't forget the impact on your 401k. audrey barns joins us with the latest. >> reporter: everyone involved in a meeting between republican and democratic leaders described it as productive, yet it didn't produce an agreement and there are two days left to get it done to avoid automatic tax hikes and across-the-board spending cuts. lawmakers involved in the white house summit vowed to keep chipping away at the sticking points to reach a deal. while senate minority leader mitch mcconnell struck an optimistic tone, senate majority leader harry reid sounded cautious, warning americans whatever they come up with by sunday won't be perfect. after the meeting, president obama made it clear failure is not an option. >> if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders and the senate, i expect a beam to -- bill to go on the floor, and i have asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that taxes on the middle class families don't go up, that unemployment insurance is available for 2 million people, and
's ran paul country. he is very mindful of that. i don't think he is in a position right now to cut any kind of deal that would invite a problem for himself at home. >> all right. when we hear senator john barosso saying he thinks the president is eager to go over the cliff because it's going to get some some type of political victory, does anybody inside the white house really feel that way that this is, in general, a political victory for the president or democrats in general? >> i do think that people in the white house -- the president's advisors and even the president think they have the upper hand, thomas. polls show that generally speaking, if we do go over the cliff most folks will sort of blame republicans. i think the white house is using that as their lerchlg. i think also, though, when you hear the politicians are saying that the president iseering to go over the cliff, some of that is posturing to maybe put some of the blame back on him. this is something that if the economy starts to suffer on this, people are going to look to blaming each other. i think that it's likely,
want to keep in mind. lesson one, if you don't define yourself, your opponent will do it for you. ads and timing matter. romney let the president's early attacks go largely unanswered. romney's campaign answered after a long, expensive primary to choose how to spend at the time limited funds and tested better they claim than bio spots or defenses of his personal record. in the end, obama beat romney by ten points. on the economic values question that was this, which candidate is more in touch with people like you? 53% said romney's policies would favor the rich. 10% said that the about the president's policies and romney, first republican nominee in the history of our nbc sls "wall street journal" poll and ended with a painful number, 47% of the voters viewing him positively. the obama campaign was also able to get more bang for the buck because they bought ads early and they were very careful about where to buy the ads. in the last week of the election, the obama campaign paid $550 for a single ad in raleigh, north carolina. the romney campaign had to sell out $2,665. the obama campa
are talking about slavery. we are talking about racial disparities. you know, even the academics don't really believe in these compelling interests from an original point of view. that is not really their focus. so why we have these racial disparities? you know? isn't at all because of slavery? well, last year the federal government cannot let it be known. but they came out with the most recent figures great 72.5% of african americans now are born out of wedlock. 72.3%. american indians, 66.2%. latinos, 53.3%. white people, still pretty high, 29.1%. for asian people, it is 17.2%. so in other words, seven out of 10, six out of 10, five out of 10 for blacks and american indians and latinos because they are the so-called underrepresented in minority who get racial preferences. and a two out of 10 people are typically have racial problems. not only in terms of education but in terms of crime and whatever social indicators that you want. now, that is the real problem. of course, that is not going to be fixed by racial preferences. thank you.

of the tornadoes and the snow today we had a repeat of it. the tornado threat i don't think as big as yesterday but it is still there. further off toward the east as the line right here continues to push off toward the east. it is very unstable ahead of it. i will show you that throeat ina second. the blizzard going on near the ohio and mississippi river right there south of paduka. that's the bulls eye. it will continue to go off to the northeast. anywhere you see this yellow from parts of virginia to central florida could see windy conditions. we could see tornadoes. i think the bullseye of tornadoes is where this moderate risk is across south and north carolina. that will be later on this afternoon. we have blizzard warnings in effect. darker red is blizzards reduce visibility quarter of a mile. 3-6 inches in additional snow around the ped duaducah area. the bullseye will be well over a foot. coastal areas mostly rain. start with a little snow transitioning over to rain. you will be dealing with a lot of snow this evening and all day tomorrow. guys? >> rick, thank you very much. you have bee
the gop is standing up for the rich what the democrats don't understand is that the hostility towards how much washington end spends that this whole discussion of the last six weeks has been about raising taxes on the wealthy. >> let's say we get a deal and it's short-term spending cuts and people don't have someone to blame because we don't go over the cliff, but the markets don't like it the world economy doesn't like it and ultimately our currency becomes in jeopardy as the currency of the world. >> at this point they will blame the republicans. if you can the american people to choose or dig in what they really want is to end the spending more than raising the tacks. they will accept a tax increase on the wealthiest americans. but an even higher percentage support significant spending cuts. and that's not part of the democratic package, so what i'm saying is that both sides here have a problem with the american people, and it's why congress has an 11% job approval rating. gadhafi had an 17% approval rating, and that's from the people he was killing. >>> how ar

. >> and "washington post" columnist, jonathan capehart. thank you all so much for being with us. and why don't we just start really quickly with the story of the year, mika. and that, of course, barack obama wins, the republicans lose. and in a way that perhaps is more telling than just what one election result might suggest. >> well, i think it certainly does. and it gives him a certain platform and credibility that perhaps he didn't have before. but watching as these fiscal cliff negotiations have gone through the holidays, it certainly is perhaps a little bit more of a bully pulpit for the president and for his position on taxes. but i think the biggest story of the year came at the end of the year, in the past week or so. which is the massacre at the elementary school in sandy hook, newtown. those are the stories that barnicle and andrew have chosen as the top stories of 2012 to cover. mike barnicle, would you agree, that this could be his signature for his second term? >> i do. i do agree with that. i think the events of a few days ago in newtown, connecticut, will help shape a good portion of th
scenario moving forward. >> i don't think it's a lack of urgency, but a great deal of concern that republican party failed to do anything. it seems that in the house, boehner has no control over his extreme right wing faction. i think the american people are very clear about what they want. what they want is to ask the wealthiest people in the country to pay their fair share of taxes. there was a poll out the other day, 70% of the american people think folks making over $250,000 a year should pay their fair share. they understand that one out of four corporations are paying nothing. the american people are very, very clear throughout this election and in polling as well. do not cut social security, medicare and medicaid. you have the situation with republicans saying hey, we don't think billionaires should pay a nickel more in taxes, but we think there should be cuts in programs impacting working families who are already hurting. that's the problem we have. >> let's talk about one of the programs, unemployment insurance. it seems that the administration believes that it is ver

happened, don't constituents want to know what their legislators think? why not just embrace what you think even if you say, well, i don't think gun control laws should be put into place in america. >> if i told you it was tough politics, would you be shocked? that that's the reason why. but in all fairness, i think that the political realities and the fact it is politically tough, despite what happened in newtown for a lot of politicians to do anything to anger the gun rights enthusiasts. and we're talking about, as you reported, a 4 million member organization, it's tough for them to do that. i think also, everybody is just trying to kind of work through what could be possible legislatively, and for those who are in politically perilous situations, there's no benefit in them jumping on a piece of legislation before they really take the time and see what they may or may not have to vote on. >> dana bash reporting live from washington. >>> if you were watching the nra's announcement on friday, you could not help but see this. >> the nra has blood on its hands. shame on the nra. ban assault
